"The two-mode system (Sport and Auto) senses a number of vehicle inputs, including vehicle speed, steering angle, brake torque, throttle position and lateral acceleration to tune the suspension’s response characteristics.
Technology sharing will be easier with Gilles' new role as head of the SRT division.
Damping rates are significantly different between the two modes, with minimal changes in ride harshness as well.
Use of the Sport mode may also improve the Challenger’s ability to keep the rear wheels on the road during hard launches, something that is often found challenging when dealing with independent rear suspension cars.
The technology behind the adaptive system was not revealed. Both Cadillac and the Chevrolet Corvette use a “ferrofliud,” whose thickness or viscosity can be changed by altering a magnetic field applied to it. Ride conditions are monitored continually when the vehicle is in operation and damper performance typically adjusted a hundred times per second. Other approaches are possible, though."
So here's one of the official announcements made, although we had indication that this was coming to the Challenger platform.
Let's talk about Active Dampening and the goods vs bads of this and compare against what the aftermarket has to offer (KW Coilover, Pedders, etc). Also, and this might be for the SRT engineers, I wanted to discuss how the technology works. Also, I want to compare this with just doing the 392 camber/tension bar/motor mount swap.
In all, I'm leaning toward the camber/tension/motor mount swap to improve drivability.
